Craftin' Desert Divas "Nature's Wonder" Linky Party - Week 2!

 
Welcome to this week's Crafting Desert Divas Linky Party! The theme for this Linky Party at Craftin Desert Divas is “Nature’s Wonders”!  Please play along and create something that fits this week's theme and link up at the Craftin' Desert Diva’s Blog.
Every other Monday is beginning of a new semi-weekly Linky Party over at the CDD blog. We hope you will share your projects with us! And there are prizes! Every Linky Party will have a winner and a Top 3!  The more times you link up…the more chances you have to win!!
 
Here is my project for this week's party:
 
 
As soon as I saw this Pretty Peacock digital stamp, available in the CDD shop, I knew I needed to use it on some projects.  She is so sweet and pretty and I couldn't wait to color her and add some sparkle and shine. 
I created the background with some watercolors and gold color shine spray and backed that with some gold glitter paper.  The perfect backdrop for this beautiful bird. 
 
 
I colored her in with all kinds of greens and blues and purples and added a little gold Wink of Stella.  I used one of my new favorite sets of dies, Stitched in Circles for the shaker element.  The large scalloped circle at the back, the PML card I used for the sentiment, and the pretty wreath I cut out of glitter paper were all cut using this die set.  This one is going to get a lot of use.



And speaking of getting a lot of use... I already have more plans for this beauty.  When I printed her, I printed lots of different sizes and even flipped her to face the other way...
 
Check out the CDD shop for these items!
